RNC Chair Welcomes Rep. Paul & His Supporters at GOP ConventionSubmitted by DeMolay on Sun, 08/19/2012 - 20:16
The head of the Republican National Committee says congressman Ron Paul and his supporters are "welcomed with open arms" at the Republican National Convention. Even so, the man who is technically still a candidate for president has no speaking role and is planning a separate event before the convention.
Despite worries that Paul supporters will be a distraction in Tampa, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus tells Fox News, "I would keep the powder dry on Ron Paul. I think he is going to have a great week. We certainly respect what his people have done and what he has done in this campaign."
